Research Summary:

Cécile completed her PhD on the significance of the sense of self in the moral experiences of managers using a Jungian framework.  She has since researched the notion of compartmentalization, the concept of transcendence applied to business ethics, and the role of moral and active imagination in moral decision-making. Previous research focused on exploring the meaning of corporate social responsibility. She has a strong interest in C.G. Jung’s work in relation to ethics and personal development in organisations. She has published several articles and book chapters in that area.
